Studies have shown a correlation between a higher incidence of hearing reduction with diabetics but to date there has been no definitive causal link either way.
This latest study draws a possible conclusion that diabetes may be the cause of hearing loss but further studies are required to confirm any assumptions.
Our advice to diabetics is to arrange routine hearing checks as part of your general healthcare programme.
We provide a complemenatry basic screening programme and we’ll be happy to provide this service to you.
If there are any concerns that your hearing is affected we would recommend a full Hearing Listening & Communication Ability Assessment with our of our qualified audiologist, Sanna, Robert or Jo.
